The background was done on watercolour paper using Brushos. I got the paper very wet, and as well as sprinkling on the Brusho crystals, I also sprinkled on some rock salt. This moves the colours around and can be brushed off when the piece is completely dry.
I then stamped the fish and seaweed into place using Black Archival. When this was dry, I removed a bit of the colour on the fish by loosening with water and blotting with kitchen towel. I could then colour in the fish using my Spectrum Noir pencils.
I added a little colour to the weeds, and highlighted with Glossy accents and a tiny bit of glitter. Patience is needed for this step, it takes ages to dry!
I trimmed it back just a little and matted onto some co-ordinating colours.
I'm really looking forward to playing again with my Brushos and mastering some different techniques. In the meantime, I hope you like this. There are loads of beautiful entries again this month; good luck everyone. Till next time. Xxx
